Move over black! Red winter coats & jackets are hotter, brighter & right on trend
Red coats are popping up all over the place. They’re right on time as bright colors are a major trend for 2022. I’d spent ages looking for a replacement for my black winter jacket that’d seen better days when red winter coats came onto my radar and made me pivot. Colorful winter outer layers can be hard to coordinate with the rest of your outfit but red coats go with pretty much everything. It’ll go with all of your black, white, blue, and even pink outfits since clashing pink and red is another current trend. Whether it’s a red button down coat, red trench coat or red puffer coat, from ASOS, Karen Millen or Valentino, the red winter coat is taking its place firmly in our closets this season. If you want a statement coat, this is it!
How others are styling their red coats
Take some fashion & style inspo from these ladies rocking their red coats from cozy teddy coats with black jeans and gold accessories to belted faux fur trimmed coats with black boots. The black pants and jeans are definitely a go to bottom to style with this color jacket.
Tailored Red Winter Coats
My legs are always freezing in the Winter so I prefer a longer length coat which isn’t hard at 5’2″! These red winter coats are mid to long length and made from warmer fabrics like wool and cashmere.
I like fitted, single breasted or double breasted tailored coats as they elevate any outfit and they’re so versatile. They work for everyday, evenings over your dresses, as well as to work. Some of my favorite coat brands this year are Mackage, Patrizia Pepe and Karen Millen for their stylish and chic designs.
Red puffer coats
Red puffer coats are perfect for colder days and more casual looks. Plus colorful puffer coats are trending for Winter 2022. Actually pretty much anything colorful is in. After a drab 2020, wardrobes started to get more colorful in 2021 and 2022’s fashion is designed to be optimistic and fun. Emily in Paris is a great place to get some colorful outfit inspiration.
Red trench coats
Red trench coats are ideal for layering and for wetter Fall, Winter & Spring days. I love a belted trench coat for creating a more flattering silhouette without the bulk of a thicker coat.
My top pick
I ended up with the long, red single breasted coat by Patrizia Pepe with its beautiful and gold buttons. It’s such a classic style that was love at first sight and even more so as it’s under $500 on sale. I had the Karen Millen wool double breasted red coat shortlisted as my back up in case it didn’t work out but it did and I love it. Sizing runs true to size.
